Year of Glad: Jenni B. Baker’s Erasing Infinite
A night of poetry sponsored by the 3rd Annual David Foster Wallace Conference

Jenni B. Baker is a practitioner of found poetry, her work celebrates the poetry in the existing and the everyday. She writes, “Most poets begin with an idea and find the words; I begin with the words and find an idea.”

In her current project, Erasing Infinite, she creates poetry from David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest, one page at a time. She is currently collaborating with composer Patrick Greene on a classical song cycle based on the Erasing Infinite series, set to debut in Chicago in 2016.
